#3. Drug War Hypocrisy
Jeb Bush is as “conservative” as it gets on drug policy. He has stated that he is against medical marijuana, as it is only a “guise” for eventual legalization. In 2000, he called for more federal funding in all aspects of the Drug War, and as governor, he supported mandatory sentences for drug offenses. All of these stances would be bad enough on their own, but it is reported that in high school, Bush was known to frequently smoke marijuana. If his own proposals were to be applied to his younger self, he would have likely spent years in jail.
